    It takes two trips to get through Vox's bespeaking.

    The tobacco linen is great. It has me rethinking how to make up my length of the tobacco fresco.

    Medtech_expat, does Mina carry the W. Bill linen and Lesser cloth, or did you bring it to her? I don't remember seeing it when I saw her last time.

    I'm not sure about W Bill linen, but they have a whole book of linen and linen blends from Ariston (Napoli). I thought the colors and patterns were superb and marked a couple for future suits.

    Looking great, medtech.
